I have a thing for vintage furniture, and of course that extends to outdoor furniture as well. I've been collecting vintage patio furniture for quite a while, but have not amassed a very large collection. As you know, my standards are impossibly low- for price, that is!
I was really stoked to snag this aluminum rocker last summer:
It has its original vinyl-upholstered cushions. It's super comfy, except on those days where it's too hot to sit on vinyl ;) And of course, it rocks!
I snapped it up before the store had even priced it, and was ecstatic to find they would give it to me for $5. Believe me, I didn't even care if it would fit in the car- I was going to get it home somehow!
I don't know for sure how old it is, but I think I remember seeing a chaise with the same upholstery on the Brady Bunch, and I'm pretty sure we had something like this as a kid as well. So it's not that old, but still a cool piece of vintage.
Stay tuned for next Thursday's part 2, when we go old-school glider.
